Today’s China Readings June 22, 2012

Last day of kindergarten for my kids, field day this morning, so no commentary. How time flies…

If you understand Chinese I highly recommend this Youku video of a Hunan TV anchor going on an epic rant about the lunacy of the Gaokao test system and, by extension, the inequality of contemporary China. As I am writing this it has already been retweeted 190,000+ times and commented on 30,000+ times on Sina Weibo. The anchor is now a superstar, though he may also be in trouble.

If you are in China you should now be able to access Sinocism here, though only if you have a Chinese IP address, i.e. not through a VPN or proxy. The link may show an error message if your IP address is outside of China.

The best way to read this blog is to subscribe by email, especially if you are in China, as Sinocism is still mostly blocked by the GFW. The email signup page is here, outside the GFW. You can also follow me on @niubi or Sina Weibo @billbishop. Comments/tips/suggestions/donations are welcome, and feel free to forward/recommend to friends. Thanks for reading.
